“Sometimes it’s hard for guys that haven’t played top six because they’re not used to making risky plays. But sometimes you have to take risky plays to make some great offensive play,” said Jagr, who might be the first player to utter the phrase “risky plays” in a positive light in the Bruins dressing room over the last six years. “But I know they don’t like to do that and they like to play safe. It’s tough to play with me and play safe."

His number deserves to be retired in Pittsburgh. I suspect the team may be willing to do it once he files retirement papers, but even then, they may wait until a HHOF call.

His iconic moment was in game 1 of the 92 finals.
